If you are like us, you LOVE fresh produce but it can be one of the most expensive things in your grocery budget if you don’t keep an eye on the seasonal deals.
Sure strawberries are yummy – but they are sweeter at $1.00 a pound (in June) than they are at $4.00 a pound in November!
Here is a quick list of what should be rock bottom prices by middle of December – it’s great to stock up if you can/freeze or simply enjoy as a fresh treat!
Keep in mind that simple rule of $1.00 or less for a pound of produce – make sure to weigh items in bags and get the heavier bags! If the sale price is per item (like lettuce – $.69 each) – weigh a few and get the heaviest one.
Leeks are on the list — I have a great leek and potato soup, I think I need to dust off the recipe!
Fruit (a LOT of citrus — great time of year to stock up on vitamin C)
- red cabbage
- green cabbage
Always a good buy
